Today i got a used XFX 580 8GB for mining

I thought all 580 8GB should be 2000mhz on the memory ? This one not only stays at 1750 but

IF I TRY TO GO even to 1850 it starts crashing like crazy both in windows or hiveOs ?????

Its a dual bios GPU so I tried switching to the second bios, which boots and then crashes right away
I also tried flashing bios a few times, if i flash it with a 2000mhs bios its crashing constantly even with no OC.
I tried flashing the second bios (as far as I know i just need to be swtiched on it in orther to flash it) nothing helped there, keeps crashing.

So the card is stable at base BIOS and 1750 but it gets me only 25 mh/s do you have any idea how can I fix this i need to be able to increase the memory at lease a little bit.

Thanks for the help :)

are you use it is not the 4GB version?

or possible they flash the RX 480?
I was thinking the same thing but I dont think a 4gb would go even close to 25mh/s on ETH.
Also I have 470 and 480 running at 2150 and 2200 on the memory.

Maybe if they DID flashed an older 480 some buggs appeared?
What if I try to put a 480 bios on the "580" ? Should I try that ?

The risk for reward scenario. It is your choice.
